Mary Williams Fish
Mary Williams Fish passed away at home on Wednesday, November 3, at the age of 74. Mary was a devoted daughter, wife, sister, and aunt, and will always be remembered for her kindness, her generosity of spirit, and her love of family. Mary was born at Ohio Valley General Hospital on November 17, 1946, to the late Louie and Betty Williams. She grew up alongside her younger sister and brothers, Millie, Fred and Eddie, in Cameron. Mary never met a stranger, and during the years that she and her husband Jim owned Fish’s Furniture Store in Cameron and Moundsville, she could always be found chatting up her customers – she truly had the “gift of gab.” Mary dearly loved her family and was happiest when the entire gang was together. Travel was one of her pleasures, and her favorite trips were family outings - at the beach house in North Carolina with the Cook, Chelette and Piccotti cousins, and her last trip, a Disney cruise with her brother Fred and his family. Mary was a wonderful aunt to several generations of children, including her nieces and nephews, Amanda, Dolly, Jack and Louie, and her great-nephews and great-niece, Jon, Ruby, Kenneth, and Ben. To them, she was Aunt May or Aunt Mimi, and especially in her later years she took great joy and pride in watching them grow. Mary was predeceased by her parents, her husband Jim Fish, brother, Eddie Williams and niece, Amanda Rich. Survivors include her sister Millie Rich, brother, Fred Williams (Kara), step-daughters, Diana Anderson and Sheila Bennett, niece, Dolly Dalton, nephews, Jack and Louie Williams, great-niece and great-nephews, many beloved aunts, uncle, cousins and friends, and her mischievous dog and constant companion, Chloe. The family would like to give special thanks to her cousin, Tammy Chelette, and her family, who kept in close touch and made many trips to visit Mary when she was no longer able to travel, and to Tom and Cindy Heise, her neighbors and friends who looked in on her for so many years. Family will receive friends on Sunday, November 7th, 2021 from noon until time of memorial services at 1:30 p.m. at the Anderson Funeral Home, 1109 2nd Street, Moundsville, WV with Reverend Steven Jumper officiating. Private interment in Highland Cemetery, Cameron. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to the Seeing Hand Association, Inc., 750 Main Street, Wheeling WV 26003.
